    Change header background and textarea arrows in IE

    Asked by Dannilee on November 27, 2014 at 06:22 AM



    I have the header background set to transparent but it is still showing as grey.

    Also how do I stop the text area from being resizable and also having the ugly scroll arrows in IE?

    There is probably a lot of unneeded css in there from starting with a theme?

    Hi Dannilee,

    To remove the background of your header, please inject this CSS code to the bottom of your Form Styles.


        background: none !important;

        border-bottom: none !important;


    And to eliminate the resizable and the scroll on IE, please inject this CSS to the bottom of your Form Styles.

    textarea { overflow: auto;  resize: none; }


    Please click this guide on how to inject CSS code to your form.


    Hope this help!

    I am still having a couple of issues, the hint text is still showing grey even though in the css I have it set to black and the hover on the submit button is grey even though I have it set to white?
